The wisest and most far-seeing, the most skeptical of Dems, etc, held their noses and voted for McCain, knowing even better than McCain knew(he who said we had nothing to fear from Obama if he were to win)...
They voted that way to stop Obama, because they did know.
However, there’s a group of people who trusted in what they thought they heard Obama saying and promising. Post racial, post partisan, fix Washington gridlock, cut the deficit in half, shovel ready jobs, yada yada yada.
They were too gullible. Fools is a bridge too far, in my opinion...HOWEVER, that was then this is now and there’s no longer the slightest excuse.
For all the wailing and teeth grinding over OH, I believe they will not be had twice, and will rectify their mistake.
The context of McCain’s remark was that of race — that Obama’s “blackness” was not (of itself) a reason to fear. Too bad he did not go on to make it clear that Obama’s likely policies were something to fear greatly.
